British artist, musician and DJ Little Boots is starting the New Year right with an announcement of her forthcoming “Burn” EP, plus the release of a stellar new mix-tape featuring two brand new original tracks from the artist herself (“Shadows” and “Picture”). The BURN mix-tape (premiered via The FADER) features an all female cast including The Black Madonna, Jessie Ware, Lauren Flax, yaeji, Francesca Lombardo and many more. Listen to the BURN MIXTAPE, plus teasers for two BRAND NEW Little Boots tracks HERE (track listing below).
Little Boots (aka Victoria Hesketh) will be releasing her “Burn” EP early this spring. A collaborative project boasting some of the finest female talent in production, this record will see her shift even closer to the dance-floor, claiming a darker, more atmospheric territory while retaining her signature pop sensibilities. The result is an electrifying fusion of forward thinking dance production and Victoria’s trademark melodies and lyrics. Little Boots revealed more details on her upcoming EP with PAPER Magazine today [read HERE].
Burn was co-produced by Victoria in collaboration with Joyce Muniz (“Shadows”), Lauren Flax (“Picture”), Planningtorock and Cora Novoa and was mixed by Marta Salogni, fresh from her work on the latest Bjork album.
On the progression of her sound, Victoria says: “Creating a project focused on female talent is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and the process was incredibly inspiring. The producers involved hail from more underground backgrounds sonically and have very different approaches, but what tied everything together was their open mindedness and embrace of pop hooks and melodies. Since relocating to Los Angeles I’ve been DJing a lot and the shift in sound very much reflects this. In many ways this EP really feels like a rebirth for me. Conceptually, I’ve been interested in the themes of desire, lust and lack, so the title “Burn” can be interpreted in many ways, from the burn of desire, to the burn of pain; you cannot have one without the other.”
Little Boots will be announcing the release date of her forthcoming “BURN” EP very soon. In the meantime, listen to two new tracks and enjoy the BURN Mix-tape HERE.
